These mini cupcakes are so delicious and are perfect for any occasion or as a treat enjoyed by everyone.
125g butter, softened
125g castor sugar
150g self raising flour
2 heaped tbsp cocoa powder
4 tbsp freshly squeezed orange juice
75g butter softened
1 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
225g icing sugar
1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 4/ 180°c. Prepare the mini paper cases into the cupcake tin. Start by beating the butter and sugar together then stir in the eggs one by one.
2. Sift the flour and cocoa powder and combine with the rest of the mixture, then stir in the orange juice. Evenly distribute between the cases and bake for 15 minutes. Once done leave to cool completely.
3. Now beat together all the ingredients for the buttercream, once the cupcakes are cooled add a dollop of buttercream to each top and spread using a palette knife. I added a few magic stars but you can decorate yours with anything 🙂
Have fun baking…
